After selling my Canon 350d, I originally contemplated on upgrading to a Canon 50d. But an opportunity to buy a Canon Power Shot G10 (which I was eyeing for a while now) came up and so, long story short, I am now the proud owner of the world’s best point-and-shoot (says me and National Geographic Adventure Magazine). There are three things I like about the G10:
1. It’s lighweight, so it’s perfect for street and travel photography.
2. It’s more good-looking and less bulky than its predecessors. And,
3. It’s very powerful.
Let me put it this way, the images that I’ve shot using the G10 can be comparable to those of any digital slr. Look:
Taken from a distance of about 30 feet. Optimum zoom of 5X.
Shot within close range.
The manual controls allowed me to take this silhouette shot, about 15 feet away.
These were taken on the day I got the G10. I was very excited and walked around Ateneo, snapping at anything I could lay my eyes on, all the while using manual controls. I did very little post-processing with these pictures but I have to say I was really blown away by the image quality. I haven’t played with it that much yet so I’m very excited to unleash its full potential in the days to come.
I still plan to get a 50d, though. Eventually.
